Blue Shades


Have you ever wondered why pregnant women are always cradling their bellies?  I always did.  I would think, ugh, why are they always holding their stomachs?! And now, I'm one of those women.  For me, personally, it's just natural.  He's moving around so my instinct is to hold my stomach and sometimes rub my belly which is even weirder.  Another selfish reason I hold my belly sometimes is to be like, look, there's a baby in there and not that I ate too many hamburgers!  Although, lately, seeing pictures of me holding my belly is almost comical because it looks like I'm trying to smuggle a watermelon under my dress.

Survival Work Mode


Dressing for work has become a thing of survival.  What works, what fits, what's comfortable...One thing is for sure, flats are a must.  It's been awhile since I've worn heels.  I even had to work from home one day because the swelling in my feet were so bad.  What a strange reason to work from home too.  Sorry, my feet look like Fred Flintstone's making it impossible to come to the office.  Surprisingly though, swollen feet suck!  Okay, enough about my feet...trust me, it was not pretty though.

Mixing Time


I'm finally down to like 5 different outfits and two pairs of shoes that I've been cycling through because nothing else fits.  Trying to be creative in mixing the things that do fit for work actually has me excited to shop my closet once my clothes fit again.

I've been loving getting to catch up on bloglovin and getting ideas for the fall.  It's definitely motivating me and taking my mind off the aches and pains I'm currently going through in this last little part of my third trimester.  Okay, confession time, before getting pregnant, I had no idea what trimesters were...please don't let me be the only almost 30 year old that didn't know...

This is quite the deceiving top as it definitely does not show the massiveness that is my belly right now.  Dressing for work at 7 1/2 months pregnant has been interesting.  If I could wear my husband's pjs/sweats to work (all that will fit me) I would.  However, I can't.  Most of my outfits are very very basic.  I hardly ever venture into my closet anymore since I'm now just rotating between like 4 different outfits.  The old me would be going crazy but right now I just want to be comfortable.  The baby is getting so big that I'm much more comfortable in dresses with cardigans.  I can't complain though.  I've been lucky to have a pretty normal pregnancy with hardly any sickness so if my biggest problem is finding something to wear, I'll take it!

Practical Love


My husband and I have become quite the practical gift givers.  He gave me a Clarisonic Mia and he bought himself a vacuum.  I say he bought himself the vacuum because I could never bring myself to spend as much as he did for a flipping vacuum.  Since it is our finances, you could say my gift was that I would stop stopping him from buying the vacuum.  He had his mind set on a Dyson vacuum which of course we had to order because we couldn't find the one he wanted locally.  The man literally said to me, "I can't wait for the weekend to be over because I'm that much closer to getting my vacuum."  And that people is love.

Weekend Errands


These are my new maternity jeans.  I banned myself from shopping but these were purchased with a gift card I received for Christmas.  Back to the main topic though - maternity bottoms.  Seriously, how will I ever go back to normal pants, jeans, or skirts?  Maternity bottoms are the most comfortable things EVER.  I'm not kidding.  I don't even care if the maternity band shows - that band is magical.  My favorite pencil skirts for work are from J Crew but, unfortunately, they don't have a maternity line.  I would love to know if anyone knows where I can find colorful maternity skirts!  I think I would cheat on my ban if I could find them...shhhhhh...

Grandfather Shirt


A couple years ago, my grandfather came from Puerto Rico to stay with my parents for a little while.  I was living in Jacksonville at the time but would come visit every weekend to spend time with him.  He used to wear a shirt, similar to the one I'm wearing, all the time to the point it got a hole in it.  He asked me to throw the shirt away since he couldn't wear it anymore but I must have gotten it mixed in with my laundry since I found it in my suitcase when I got back home.  He passed away shortly after but I never threw the shirt away and keep it on my blanket throw stand for safe keeping.  It's an odd memento to keep but warms my heart whenever I catch a glimpse of it.  Has anyone else kept odd mementos?

Lake Alice


I'm risking my life here people.  When I was little, my dad took my sisters and I out to Lake Alice to see the alligators.  I guess my sisters and I may have gotten a little too close to the water so my dad warned us that alligators are quick to snatch up little kids and eat them...scarred for life.  So when my husband kept telling me that he couldn't see my face to take a picture, ummm that's because someone has to keep an eye out for any alligators.  Jeesh.  As soon as I heard a little kid scream, "there's one!" I bolted.

Country Spark


I'm very proud to admit that I am a reality t.v. show junkie.  I know I've mentioned my love for the Honey Boo Boo show here two or four times already, ummm did anyone else see Mama June make sketti???  If not, google it, I haven't looked at spaghetti the same ever since.  It's almost the end of another work week and while I know others may have more exciting plans, I seriously love weekends that include my favorite grungy pjs, in bed, catching up on my reality t.v. shows. It's my idea of bliss.

Swamp Fire


If you live in the South, especially where I'm from, college football is life.  Umm, my alma mater discovered Tim Tebow, enough said.  Okay, we didn't discover him... Anywho, I started pulling out my game day shirts and realized that I don't really own "cute" game day clothes.  In fact, I kind of dress like a boy...jerseys, game t-shirts...I never really get the girls that wear nice dresses, heels, and lots of jewelry to the games.  On the other hand, I am super sloppy.  Any ideas on dressing on the nicer side without wearing pencil skirts and heels?  By the way, anyone else's J Crew pencil skirts wrinkle up as badly as mine?  I literally just steamed this skirt before heading out too :-(

Mad {Wo}men


I love television shows that I strictly watch for the fashion.  Mad Men is definitely one of those shows.  I don't actually watch legal shows (with the exception of 'Suits') because it drives me crazy when they do something that you can't actually do in real life.  However, I must admit, I watch waaaayyy too much reality television shows.  One of my new favorite shows has to be the Honey Boo Boo show on TLC.  Please watch it people.  I need this on the air forever...along with Dance Moms and Real Housewives of insert any city.

Blue Oasis


I had been eyeing this Ann Taylor necklace for a long time. I love statement necklaces but I don't like to spend a lot on necklaces that I wouldn't wear everyday unless I absolutely loveitcan'tlivewithoutitcan'tgetitoutofmyhead. Although this necklace qualified for most, I couldn't justify paying full price. When it went on sale to $19.99, my psychotic shopper side came out so I called my local store, you know instead of driving over there since it's only 5 minutes away but that would've been to easy. I called my local store to purchase it over the phone and pick it up after work. Well, the SA was about to process my order when she said that someone saw her pull the necklace out for me, liked it and wanted to buy it. Ummmmm....that's my necklace!

Long story short, I called around to other stores and had one shipped to me. It was worth the hassle :-) Normal Maria wouldn't actually call this a "hassle" but psychotic shopper Maria is pretty powerful...and makes me talk in third person...

Dusty Golds and Greens


Things I learned Friday: After looking at these photos taken in the afternoon, I apparently spend a lot of time sitting on my legs at work and end up with wrinkly pants.  So professional...

We have a fun weekend planned but I don't know what the plans are...hmmm.  Monday is my birthday so hubby said that he is taking me somewhere some day this weekend or Monday but I'm not to know any specifics other than that.  He's always good at planning surprises so I'm excited to find out what he has planned!  I hope everyone has a great weekend :-)

Leopard and Green


I know I say this every single Friday but I am sooooo ready for the weekend!  I have big time plans to sleep, sleep, and more sleep.  I do want to go see The Dictator at the movies so I guess I will have to wake up and get dressed for that...although, I have been known to go to the theater in yoga/pajama pants before ;-)
